Hey everyone, haven't written a post in a while. I wanted to see if injecting myself once a week with hydroxo b12 would lessen my symptoms. Even though I feel a bit better e.g (not tired and fatigued when I first wake up anymore), I still seem to lack energy throughout the day.
Are there some people who simply do not absorb b12 efficidently, and need to inject even more than 1ml every week?
I had my iron tested a while ago and the dr said it was at a pretty solid number (115, I beleive). The dr told me it needed to be above 70 ish to grow hair, so im happy with that finding. This means that I might not have an absorption problem afterall which I am thankful for.
One of my many concerns is that my hair loss is due to something that I can prevent. I have been franticly searching if pernicious anemia is linked to other autoimmune condition, such as celiac etc. No hair loss runs in my family, I cannot think of any man who is blood related that has/had hair loss.
Pretty much my symptoms are general fatigue, being tired but not being able to sleep which injecting hydroxo for a few weeks seems to have fixed (I sleep like a baby), hair loss but overall hair has not felt right in years (dry, brittle and grey from age 21 and I'm 27 now), and blurry vison.
I know my symptoms might be signs of aging but really, this bad at 27? I just don't feel right within myself and it seems fishy how when I inject hydroxo I feel alright for maybe 2-3 days, then steadily decline.
I don't really want to inject more than once a week as that seems drastic and expensive. But I will do anything to feel normal again, like I do in those 2-3 days after injecting. Even my depression goes away during those 2-3 days and past those days my depression can be crippling.
So my question and thoughts are, are there people who need to inject very regularly? I'm talking like maybe 2-3 times a week? I am thinking of injecting myself more frequently and seeing if this helps matters.
